Border Crossings: From U.S. to Canada, 1908-1935 about James Ralston
Name: James Ralston
Age: 23
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1907
Arrival Port: Bridgeburg, Ontario
Date of Arrival: 16 Mar 1930
Birth Location: Santa Anna, California
Gender: Male

Ever in Canada-1928-Mar 1930 St-Stephen, NB; Wife-Edna Ralston, St-Stephen, NB; Aunt-Mrs John Adams, Chelsea, Mass

Marriage Certificate Info: Occupation Chauffeur, age 22; Religious Denomination: Baptist; Residence: Los Angles, CA; Father: John Ralston b. Los Angeles CA; Mother: Beulah Ramsdell; and Edna Mae (Pauline) Wormell; Age 18; Religious Denomination: United Church of Canada; Residence: St. Stephen, Charlotte Co., NB; Place of Birth: Same; Father: Newell Wormell; Place of Birth: Grand Manan, NB; Mother: Lillian Libby; married 3 Aug 1928, McColl Parsonage, St Stephen, Charlotte, New Brunswick, Canada; License No. 10958. Edna had my mother, Marion Dorothy Ralston, the following 29 May 1929. I can find no address where they might have lived together after they married in St. Stephen or in the US. On 4 Feb 1933, James Edward Ralston's wife Edna married George Clayton Hinds Sr in Portland, ME. So James and Edna had to have been divorced sometime between 1928 and 4 Feb 1933 but I can't find any documentation.

These are the only facts that I can find about James Edward/Edwin Ralston.

I was told that James Edward Ralston was an alias; that he was in the military and that his real name was George Franklin Buzzell. I was told that James or George, about Aug 1948, parked cars at the Abner Wheeler House in Framingham, MA and that he suffered from emphysema and ended up in a Veteranís Hospital somewhere and that he had a sister living in MA.

Any help would be WONDERFUL!
